Why a career in aging?
Aging-related careers are the fastest growing in the world right now. Working with older people can be a very rewarding career, whether you are pursuing a career in the medical field, as a social worker, resource coordinator, researcher, financial/retirement planning, travel agent, or marketing. Media outlets such as the Toronto Star, Stria Network have highlighted the career opportunities in the field of aging.
Statistics Canada identified in their demographic projections that one in five Canadians should be aged 65 and older in 2024. As the population grows older, so too does the opportunity to work with older people.
